Upload or change your profile photo

How to upload a photo to your Amherst website profile that will appear in Faculty & Staff listings, course rosters, and other locations on the website.

  1. Go to any page of the Amherst website and click My Amherst. If prompted, log in with your Amherst username and password.
  2. Click on the My Profile tab.
  3. Click on the Photos tab.
  4. In the New Photo area, click on the Browse button and select the picture file you want to upload from your computer. The picture must be a .jpg file and it must be at least 300 pixels wide. Profile photos on the website are displayed in a circle. For this reason, photos that show the face in the middle (rather than at the top) of the photo work best.
  5. Once you've selected a picture file from your computer, click the Upload new photo button.
  6. To make your photo visible to everyone, whether they are logged in Amherst users or not, check the box that reads "show my photo to everyone."
